Train Set Catalogue Information

YEAR INFORMATION
1992 This excellent starter set is a reminder of the days when small engines would haul mixed goods trains along cross-country routes. Coal for this village, cattle for the next and petrol for the depot. And how peaceful the country lanes were with all this traffic going by rail!
1993 Mixed load goods trains were a common sight all over the country in the days when rail services between every town and village were frequent and cheap.
1995 The bright and cheery locomotive with its rather regal name gives a sprightly performance on the track. The variety of wagons, together with the level crossing and trackside accessories ensures that this is an excellent starter set.
1996 The regally named locomotive makes easy work of pulling the five wagons included in this excellent starter set. The simple but effective track oval incorporates a level crossing and with the addition of the trackside accessories, which are included, soon has the lucky recipient up and running. But be warned, it will not be long before the imagination is fired up and the urge to extend the layout will result in the purchase of extra track pieces and scenic accessories.
